How to Make Justice Count: Introducing Consensus-Driven Metrics for Criminal Justice Data

Criminal justice policymakers are often forced to make crucial decisions using limited or stale data. But accurate, accessible, and actionable data is essential to building stronger and safer communities. That’s why Justice Counts is empowering data-driven decision-making today and planning for better criminal justice data tomorrow.

This national event on May 4, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. ET will mark a critical step forward in that effort: introducing the first set of consensus-driven Justice Counts metrics.

We invite criminal justice practitioners from across the U.S. to join us in creating a stronger information infrastructure for the justice system by learning how to mobilize these metrics in your own states. Justice Counts is a consensus-building initiative of the Bureau of Justice Assistance led by The Council of State Governments Justice Center.

Register to participate in the event.
